The Victorian touches at this historic property (formerly the Metropole Hotel), tucked away on a quiet side street steps from the Strand and Trafalgar Square, have been updated with Baccarat chandeliers, mosaic flooring and Corinthian columns. What we loved Watching the in-house florist arrange clouds of orchids in the lobby – a daily ritual – while sipping our morning latte. Book a table at the Northall, the hotel’s buzzing restaurant, and make sure to order the Essex wild rock oysters (served with merlot vinegar and shallots) or the Cumbrian beef tartare with spicy chips.
